In October 2019, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) conducted a sting operation and uncovered an outrageous corruption scheme in the regency of Indramayu in West Java. KPK then arrested several people including then Regent of Indramayu one Supendi (Golkar). Tthe trial started in December 2019 and lasted until mid-2020. All defendants were found guilty, however, the KPK did not stop investigating. Towards the end of the year KPK named former member of the West Java DPRD Abdul Rozaq a suspect. Over six months later, on April 15, 2021, KPK named more suspects in the case, both of whom were Abdul Rozaq’s colleagues during his tenure in West Java DPRD.¬†We have to wait for another five months before the trial of the latest defendants starts.
